    By locals in a Dutch colonial building. Beautiful enclosed garden. Friendly and helpful staff. Impressive breakfast. Cook makes fresh currys. Arrived here because an agency booked us this place. We were not disappointed. Go there if you want peace and quiet in a cosy atmosphere....More

    Excellent all the way. If you need good coffee in the morning order it separate - the filter coffee isn't worth much. All the critical comments on the near by beach is bs when you're here off season it's really ok 😎😎

    For us this was the perfect hotel to end our holiday in Sri Lanka. The hotel is in a beautiful colonial building, a really historic accommodation. It is a very green place (with for instance beautiful bamboo trees and we also also lots of birds)...More
